As long as your car has a good suspension and steering ( not worn out ) , upgrading to larger/wider wheels will help . Even stock 1988 aluminum wheels would be an improvement ( 15' rims ) A big help would be to make sure you have good front struts and rear shocks . Upgrading suspension for handling can make a huge difference , such as lowered springs , heavier duty front and rear stabilizer bars , upgraded neoprene bushings for the bars and lower front control arms . The list can go on and on , only lack of cash will hold you back .
